Settlement proposed in 'Fighting Sioux' case
A settlement could lead to the end of the University of North Dakota's "Fighting Sioux" nickname and logo, The Grand Forks Herald reports.

UND is proposing to eliminate "Sioux" within three years unless it can get approval from Sioux tribes. Ron His Horse is Thunder, the chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, said that probably won't happen.

"I told him I didn't want the tribes to have to agree to the cooling-off period," His Horse is Thunder told the Herald, referring to a briefing given to him by state attorney general Wayne Stenehjem. . "I told him we're not going to change our position or withdraw our resolution saying we oppose the use of the nickname. . . . His hope is during the next three years we'll reconsider."

The settlement would end UND's case against the NCAA's Indian mascot policy. The school can't host post-season games or display Indian imagery during playoffs under the policy.
